Armistice Day on Google Maps

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 Germany signed the Armistice agreement marking the end of the First World War.

Remembrance Day ceremonies take place at 11 am across the world today to commemorate those who have died in the line of duty.

Canada Remembers is a Google Maps animation of Toronto Second World War casualties from Global News.

The map shows the homes of Toronto Second World War casualties on a month by month basis. It is possible to pause the animation or to use the time-line below the map to show the casualties for a particular month. The map markers are categorised to show Army, Air Force, Navy and Merchant Marine casualties.
